Josh Trank's FANTASTIC FOUR Gets A Script Polish; Reboot To Explore Deep Comics Mythology

With light details on Josh Trank's direction for the new Marvel adaptation, a report has revealed that the Fantastic Four reboot has had its script polished by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe.

In light of X-Men: First Class helmer Matthew Vaughn joining the Josh Trank-directed adaptation of Marvel's First Family as a producer, production on Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot is progressing. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, best-selling author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith was recently tapped to polish the film's screenplay, which was originally penned by Jeremy Slater. Grahame-Smith's credits include Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In addition, THR reports that Josh Trank is aiming for a "grounded superhero and sci-fi" approach to The Fantastic Four reboot. And the film, currently scheduled for release on March, 6, 2015, will delve deep into the comics mythology. Like Marvel Studios, this alludes to the inclusion of several elements such as Doctor Doom and Galactus (again), or even the alien race known as the Kree, among other things. What do you think?
